The Jim Thompson name conjures images of luxe Thai elements—fine fabrics embroidered with gilded threads, plush seating, oversized latticed screens, and the occasional traditional dancer who floats gracefully across the dining room to the tinkling strains of classical Thai music. Against this tableau, diners nosh on elegant renditions of Thai classics, served by genteel female servers dressed in traditional Thai garb. Everything from pad thai and tom yam soup to green mango salad and coconut ice cream are cooked with a refined hand, so that they match the grand decor at this unbeatably serene space that’s housed in a former colonial barrack. The cocktail list is expansive, but also expensive—there are fresh fruit mojitos, Singapore Slings, lychee martinis, and various margaritas and daiquiris. On cooler days and breezy evenings, ask to sit in the verdant and pretty al fresco area.
